A little hard to find...could use a new sign...but worth the effort. A pod of four self contained cottages. Nicely laid out for privacy and view. Super friendly owner. I would request "Air" as you'll get a morning visit from the animals from the next door farmland. Nice shower/bathroom. Furniture a little uncomfortable. Mattress a little thin as well. Overall...

We booked a long weekend away with our little dog in tow and had a wonderful stay at Avalon. Although conveniently located on the main road into Kerikeri, the long driveway drops you down into a very secluded and peaceful valley with a stream and duck ponds and lush gardens. We booked one of the studios which had pretty much... More

Can't rave enough about this place. A little island of paradise & tranquility in the heart of KeriKeri. Love having an excuse to go to KeriKeri just so that I can stay here. Beautiful balinese style cottages set in the most peaceful, beautiful gardens - my little patch of heaven

Unfortunately for us as a family our trip to Kerikeri which was the first in a long time was a sad occasion. However the setting was delightful, the cottages were set in the most peaceful way, we were woken up to beautiful bird song and as we sat on the deck drinking coffee, the local wildlife played nearby. The peacefulness... More

First of the location is fantastic. A little difficult to know you have the right drive in the dark. Once you get down the drive it opens up in to lush subtropical gardens, complete with two spring fed lakes. Set in the heart of the property is the office and the studio apartments. This area also includes the spring fed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Avalon is a small boutique resort with self-contained serviced cottages and studio units, facing the golf course. Described as a little paradise and piece of heaven by many travellers, our 7 acre property features natural springs, waterfalls, lakes and river where you can kayaking. Our secluded valley has the feel of a nature retreat, but is close to shops, restaurants and various attractions in Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands. Set at the top of the valley, the stylish self contained cottages offer elevated views over the beautiful property. The deck, as well the large windows, allow one to be fully immersed in nature both inside and outside. With a king bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa-beds in the lounge, the unit can sleep up to 4 guests. The cosy self-contained studio rooms are located near the lush gardens around the Oasis pool complex. They sleep 2 or 3 guests and can be adjoined for families. Our studios all have an en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and a private covered deck area. ... more   less
